Weekday Food Sorting
Alameda County Community Food Bank
Volunteers needed to build emergency food bags, as well as sort and package produce in our warehouse.
To minimize the risk of virus exposure we are limiting the initial number of unduplicated visitors and are seeking volunteers (age 18+) who can commit to joining us for at least one full day (8am -3pm) for at least 4 weeks.
IMPORTANT: For your safety and the safety of our staff and community, please note:
- Volunteers must be age 18 or older.
- We encourage volunteers to follow the CDC recommendation that populations at higher risk of severe COVID-19 illness (age 65+ and those with underlying medical conditions) continue to self-isolate, but we will not be prohibiting them from volunteer service.
- Volunteers must register. Volunteers cannot be admitted on a drop-in basis.
- All volunteers will be required to:
- Complete a daily health survey addressing areas including (but not limited) to symptoms, social distance practicing and travel.
- Adhere to distancing guidelines at all times.
- Wear self-provided face coverings that meet CDC standards and Food Bank-provided gloves.
- Wash hands frequently, assist in facility sanitizing, and follow all CDC recommendations.
Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Volunteer Team at (510) 635-3663 ext. 308 in order to get information about registering.
